Man Who Reportedly Left Emaciated Dogs to Die in Their Own Feces Must be Punished

Target: James O. Phillips III, County Attorney of Hawkins County, Tennessee

Goal: Punish man charged with nearly starving nine dogs to death.

A landlord reportedly condemned nine dogs to certain death in a trailer park he owned. Benjamin James Reece faces animal cruelty charges for allegedly abandoning the dogs for 11 days. The individual who made the horrific discovery described these canines as “extremely emaciated, living in piles of their own feces.”

While most of the innocent animals are on the road to recovery and to new forever homes, one dog unfortunately passed away from the seeming neglect. The suspect has apparently shown consistent reckless disregard for the welfare of others. Tenants in his trailer park claimed that when he abandoned the dogs he also abandoned his obligations to them, even shutting off their water supplies.

Reece should face the maximum punishment for his allegedly inhumane and callous actions. Sign this petition to urge the legal system to do its job in condemning deadly neglect.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Phillips,

This summer saw the arrest of Lisa Jean Wade for allegedly abandoning and nearly killing her pet monkey. Just a few short weeks later, Benjamin James Reece faced even more substantial charges for allegedly neglectful animal cruelty. The fact that eight of Reece’s nine reported canine victims survived is a fortunate stroke of luck that could have very easily had a much more tragic outcome.

Please exercise due diligence in this case. Do not let animal cruelty become a troubling new norm in Hawkins County. Send a message that careless neglect is every bit as much a serious crime as deliberate violence and abuse.

Ensure that if found guilty, Mr. Reece receives a punishment fitting the gravity of his alleged crimes.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. This piece of GARBAGE Benjamin James Reece should face the MAXIMUM SENTENCE!! …He knowingly want to kill these poor dogs in the most painful way possible…
    Mr. Phillips you have to send a STRONG message to this EVIL, CRUEL man
    Animal abuse can not be tolerated!!! ..BENJAMIN JAMES REECE deserves a LIFE SENTENCE nothing less….THANK YOU

    • This subhuman needs torture and death, wicked evil monster. I hope some brave Animal Vigilantes can issue Street Justice that this Retard won’t recover from

  2. These dogs didn’t choose this creep as a caretaker. This man is a cruel psychopath knowing each day those dogs sat there with no food or water. He should pay with punishment. He won’t change because he is not a normal human, but he should be in jail and mandated to never be beat an animal again. He lacks decency, empathy, kindness and apparently every other decent human quality.

    • No matter how many times I read these stories about these sick cruel idiots, I can’t believe how these people look in the mirror at themselves, so shocking how many people think it’s ok to abuse these beautiful defenseless innocent animals

  3. this jerk must get the same thing done to him…let him rot in jail in his own feces…let him die there. One less animal abuser in the world is a good start.

      You are right about that piece of shit. Don’t feed him.
      He must endure the same treatment he has done to these poor dogs.
      What Reece the monster did is unforgivable and I hope the rest of his life will be a hell.

  4. Was sind das für furchtbare menschen, die wehrlosen Hunden Schmerzen zufügen. Denen soll man dasselbe leid zufügen, was die Tieren antun und man muss die bestrafen. Die Menschen haben für die Tiere die Hölle auf Erden gebracht. Die Menschen, die Tieren Schmerzen zufügen sind krank und gehören weggesperrt. Wir müssen die stoppen. Ein Tier zu retten verändert nicht die Welt aber die Welt verändert sich für dieses eine Tier.

  5. This man should never be allowed to own animals again.
    Why he even bothered to have them is obvious that he is a sadist in the worst sense.
    Animal laws should be toughened up and jail terms mandatory.
    Heaven knows what he would do to a human being.
    The suffering of these poor dogs is mind boggling and no one unless they have starved can even come close to imagining what these dogs have gone through? Just look at the photo of that poor baby head hung down it’s spirit broken in two resigned to its fate. But thank heavens he was saved and is being cared for.

    The animal torturing murdering lowlife monster Benjamin James Reece must be put to death. This evil lowlife should not be allowed to live. Kill it slowly.
    The lowlife landlord deliberately condemned nine dogs to certain death in a trailer park he owned. The lowlife monster Benjamin James Reece faces animal cruelty charges for deliberately abandoning the dogs for 11 days. The vile and evil monster lowlife Benjamin James Reece will continue torturing and murdering the innocent animals to death if the evil bastard is not killed.
    The individual who made the horrific discovery described these canines as “extremely emaciated, living in piles of their own feces.”
    Kill the evil animal torturing lowlife pos Benjamin James Reece
    slowly.
    The filth on our planet earth.

  9. Anyone who mistreats any animal or mammal of any sort there is no punishment good enough for them but I can say this give them the death penalty like they would a murderer or a child molester or a no good human who takes these precious animals in and is not gonna take care of them or who is gonna beat them or breed them to death hang em up in a tree up side down n see how long they last without food or water or nutritional means and let it be in the wilderness so the animals mammals or furbabies or insects can suck the life out of them. Sorry y’all but that still ain’t good enough for them. I love my furbabies and any babies. They are our life they depend on us. So we need to make sure that the people who mistreat them should be punished by the law at the worst they can get. Love all gods babies he gave them life like he did us n he gave them to us to take care of. Love to all y’all xoxo
